Major League Wonderful

 “God disguised as myriad things, and playing a game of tag, has kissed you and said, “You’re it./ I mean you’re really it. Now it does not matter what you believe or feel. For something wonderful, something major-league wonderful, is someday going to happen.”- Hafiz 

 

Poetry has the power to inspire, delight, inform and take us to places that we had never before considered going. Hafiz is one such poet whose words from ancient times speak to me in ways that tickle my soul.  Did he know at the time that the syllables he uttered, seven centuries ago, would create ripples on the pond of creation and touch so many hearts?  Do we have a clue that the creative gifts of our own souls can have that impact on those who will witness them? 

How do you allow God to play tag with you?

Are you willing to be smooched by the Divine?

What ‘major-league’ wonderful thing are you open to receiving in your life? 

I KNOW that ‘major league wonderful things’ are happening every day.  Claim them. Embrace them.

 

Hafiz was a 14th century Persian, Sufi mystical poet who wrote what I like to think of as ecstatic love poems: to, for and with God. They are multi-layered, since they are divinely and humanly devotional. A modern writer Daniel Landinsky has translated these  wondrous words  and his books:The Gift – Poems by Hafiz, The Subject Tonight is Love: 60 Wild and Sweet Poems of Hafiz, and Love Poems From God – Twelve Sacred Voices From The East And West  can be found in most book stores.

    Ah, what beauty to be blessed with poetic inspiration. Just a couple of days ago, I lay in my bed talking to God in poetry. It flowed as if I had written it with great thought. It just came from my thoughts and out of my mouth, as if it were a psalm.

    Joan:
    I sense that we are all poets at heart and the Divine says “take dictation….it’s time to share the beauty that you are.” Glad you heard the call.
    Blissings,

All of It
  Another one of those wee hours wake-ups when life beckons me to the keyboard to type what I may not be able to experience emotionally. I came upon the words of Panache Desai,  author and spiritual teacher who I had the joy of hearing back in 2011 at the Celebrate Your Life Conference in P

Rocks Crumble
Had an insight today that had me laughing at the perfect absurdity while speaking with my friend Gail Lynne Goodwin from Inspire Me Today.  She had called to offer loving support with the roller coaster ride that has been my life of late,  and we were musing about being adult orphans since both se

Living in the Questions
  Since I don't have a television, the only times I watch are at the gym, at other people's homes or (as I am doing right now), in the hospital. Propped up in bed with yet another health challenge. A little more than a month ago, it was a heart attack. Back in November, it was shingles and i

Power to the Peaceful
      I was a child during the Viet Nam War. Images of destruction, napalm, death, protests, tears, verbal and sometimes heated physical altercations between those in favor of the conflict and those opposed to it, streamed across our television screen daily. War never

Heart Song
  Lately, I have been more acutely aware of the connection between the cardiac muscle that keeps blood pumping through my body and sustains this corporeal existence and the emotional center that has made my thus far, more than 55 years on the planet worthwhile. Going on month two of my new l
